Week six is upon us and the Jets are in a must win situation against the new rookie sensation Andrew Luck. So if you are traveling out to MetLife Stadium, it will be partly cloudy Sunday afternoon with a high of 68 degrees. There’s no chance of rain and there will be a bit of a breeze with winds up to 13 mph.
So as I ask you guys every week, who do the weather conditions favor? The conditions leave the teams on an equal playing field.
The ex-factor in this is the wind.
MetLife Stadium and the old Meadowlands were known for the swirling winds. And you know that will be a factor. But it won’t just be a factor for Luck and for Mark Sanchez; but it will be a factor for the kickers as well. Nick Folk needs to be on his game as well as punter Robert Malone.
The key to this game for the Jets is the offensive line. This line needs to be better. This is the most veteran group on the ENTIRE TEAM. They have to give Sanchez time to throw; they need to make holes for the running game. They have to get out of the pig pen and play like the veteran line that they are capable of playing.
Otherwise, there will be a changing of the guard at center and that will spell disaster for the Jets.
